A small earthquake was reported Monday in the north of Israel.

No damage or injures were reported in the quake, which was measured at 3.5 on the Richter scale.

The Geophysical Institute of Israel said that the tremor’s epicenter was near Almagor, just north of the Sea of Galilee.

Last October saw five minor quakes in the same area in the span of a week — all between 3.3 and 3.6 on the Richter scale.

There were no casualties or damage caused in any of those quakes.
